The Iowa City Council approved changes in parking structure rules at their meeting Tuesday by a 7-0 vote.

The ordinance establishes parking-location standards and entranceway standards that will “reduce the visual impact of structured and surface parking areas” along residential streets in multifamily zones.

The city’s Planning and Zoning commission recommended approval of the amendment by a 7-0 vote at its March 21 meeting, and the first consideration passed by a 7-0 vote.

The ordinance will require when parking is located on the ground floor of a multifamily building some residential portion of the building, such as the entrance lobby, be located on the ground floor.
